Operation of God

Though the Scriptures are clear concerning the importance of baptism, the religious world seems often confused about both its purpose and its method. At the Sixth of Romans, Paul wrote that baptism is into Christ and into His death and that it is a burial from which one is raised to walk in newness of life. Again describing baptism as a burial at Colossians Two, Paul taught that the spiritually dead are made alive with Christ, and forgiven of all trespasses. That forgiveness is described by Peter at the Second of Acts as remission of sins, of which sins the apostle instructed his audience to repent. Those penitent ones are buried in baptism and raised therefrom by faith in the operation of God.
